Video by California Is A Place. Props to my friend Kit, who writes, “Never underestimate the power of good people with a passion for the bicycle. Even in East Oakland. Especially in East Oakland.” This video is good stuff, and I’ve met the Scraper Bike King Baby Champ and he’s good people.

How long before we see Mormon missionaries on Scraper Bikes?
